This volume clearly communicates that Weber’s influence is of great significance to the history of social science, and to appreciating the theoretical work of other social scientists in the modern age. Its insightful and timely publication comprises topical and innovative work discussing Weber in a range of historical and contemporary questions including: the controversy surrounding the Da Vinci code; the charismatic role of martyrs; the nuclear weapons strategy in a post-cold-war age and the affinity between Hindu belief systems and disenchanted computer science. Max Weber Matters illustrates the multidisciplinary and continued relevance of Weber’s work and will be of interest to scholars across a range of disciplines, including historians, sociologists, political scientists and social theorists.
David Chalcraft is Professor of Classical Sociology at the University of Derby, UK.
'The centrality of Weber for contemporary sociologists in a myriad of areas...The editors have brought together not only senior specialists but also a group of new scholars whose vigorous application to contemporary issues testifies why indeed Weber matters� in interweaving past and present�.' Edward A. Tiryakian, Duke University, USA 'This diverse set of stimulating essays covering major themes in sociology - rationality, legitimacy, cultures of capitalism and historical consciousness - demonstrates over again the continuing importance of Max Weber to the modern world. Weber matters substantively because he provides a critical perspective on modernity. Erudite and original but also accessible, Max Weber Matters is a major contribution to Weber studies.' Bryan S. Turner, Wellesley College, USA '... the book does indeed point to various ways in which ’Weber matters’ continue to matter to specialists...' British Journal of Sociology
